[FORT LAUDERDALE] – The 3rd Annual Leading Ladies of Logistix (L.L.O.L.) transportation & networking conference will be held April 8-11, 2021, at the Fort Lauderdale Marriott. The three-day event is geared towards supporting women in logistics and transportation.

The conference will address women entrepreneurs’ essential needs, share resources, relationship building, networking, and inspiration.  In addition, they will be spotlighting leading women in the logistics and transportation industry. Attendees will also learn how to develop and implement action plans to start and grow their businesses.

L.L.O.L. is a female minority organization that mentors other women on how to start their transportation business.  Plus, how to thrive on their own terms in a male-dominated trucking and logistic industry. The four founders of the organization collectively have nearly 50 years of experience in the trucking, logistics & supply chain industry they will offer at the conference.
